I woke up after last nights sleep training with DD feeling quite tired but determined to get on with it. The past two days have been absolutely awful and I felt determined to make today better.
Julie, my homestart volunteer came over this morning. She’s so easy going and friendly that I found talking to her so smooth and easy. I was still in my pyjamas when she arrived but I’d managed to hoover the floors and sweep the kitchen floor. Not really what I wanted to do but DD was finding bits of crackers on the carpet that were quite obviously from a few days ago. It was gross. I’m feeling good that I did something at least. Julie looked after DD while I had a shower and got ready for my eye appointment.
I managed to get through the appointment without worrying too much about DD since I could hear her laughing and talking with Julie. It feels so good to have finally done something for myself – I’m 3 years overdue for my glasses! I chose some really nice frames on their 2 for 1 offer. They’re quite trendy and look good on. I think of them as the modern librarian in style.
and these are my free pair – a bit Posh Spice and very comfy. At least now I can do my driving lessons without going half blind from the sun in my eyes.
Afterward, as DD had falled asleep on the way out of the precinct Julie and I went for a coffee at Neros. It was so nice to chat to someone who doesn’t want to talk about babies and also someone who will let me talk about how I feel if I need to or just talk about superficial stuff.
After Julie left, I sat quietly at home while DD slept and looked up some more info on PND.
Then met a friend in the park for the kids to play.
All in all, a contented day. Doing pizza for dinner – can’t be bothered to do anything else and since I’m taking it easy, pizza it is.
Tonight DH and I are going to snuggle on the sofa and watch a film.
Looking forward to it.
